Stump Removal

Deciding when to remove a tree stump from your lawn can be a difficult decision.

Stumps Just Get In The Way

We offer stump grinding services. Stump grinding is especially useful if a stump is contaminated. Those stumps need to be targeted and removed to prevent the further spread of disease to healthy trees in the surrounding area. Tree stump grinding can eliminate problems associated with traditional stump removal methods and completes the job in a fraction of the time. In a short period of time, huge stumps that used to take up valuable space on your property, will just be a memory.

Why Tree Stump Removal Is Necessary:


Protect your home from tree roots

While a tree root may not be strong enough to damage your pipes or sewage lines from the outside, there have certainly been cases where a root has grown in an already damaged pipe, causing that pipe to burst.


Protect your lawn from decay and pests

Tree stumps can spread decay and invite unwanted species into your yard. For instance, termites, beetles, carpenter ants, and many other wood-boring insects are particularly fond of tree stumps. Once your stump has been infected it will almost certainly spread to healthy trees or shrubs on your lawn. Or worse, the wood in your home might even be at risk!


Tree stumps can be hazadous

If you are a homeowner who has young children, play time in the yard can be greatly impacted by existing stumps on your property. Running children may trip over a stump or tree roots and no one wants to risk a lawsuit if a visitor trips and is injured.



Stumps cause new tree growth

Sometimes leaving the stump behind contributes to new sprouts, which can result in many small trees growing around the stump. This is unsightly to your landscaping and quite costly to try to remove because the new shoots may keep coming back, and you may need chemicals to kill them off completely. These small trees also leech nutrients from other plants located near them, so your begonias may not receive all the nutrients they need.


Stumps take up precious yard space

Especially if you don’t have a very large yard, the space you lose from the stump and roots may occupy a lot of space. Just think: You can use that space for a flowerbed or a picnic table.


Stumps aren't pretty

Homeowner Associations and commercial properties may need to have limbs removed near lights (parking, sidewalks, roadways, etc.). This is particularly a concern for trees along pedestrian paths, driveways, and surrounding buildings.

The service and professionalism our community received from Mt. Pleasant Tree Service was “top notch”. From the time they took to go though our neighborhood to see what our needs were, to the professional bid they presented, they have given us the service that I did not know was still out there. You can tell they take pride in what they do, and know what they are doing. When their crew came in to maintain our trees in our community, they made sure things were taken care of to our satisfaction, and cleaned up. I would highly recommend Mt. Pleasant Tree Service for any tree needs you may have… small or large!

I have worked with Mount Pleasant Tree Services on a number of our projects. Tommy, his son Jason along and their crew have been a pleasure to do business with. They have shown up on time, every time and completed the job on time. They always leave the property clean and tidy. Their knowledge, professionalism and experience in what they do was the reason I first and still use them for all our projects. I am happy to recommend them and would happily answer questions about their service if necessary.
